Peace Point Action (PPA) is an non-governmental, service-oriented organization founded in 2005 to address the needs of vulnerable communities in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria targeting the children, youth and women on issues of environmental justice, good governance, HIV and AIDS prevention, health and gender. PPA strategy involves the use of arts, community drama and music as tools for community mobilization and behaviour change.
PPA´s mission is to assist indigent people of the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria affected by negative environmental circumstances, educational, health and other social-related issues, including HIV and AIDS and governance, through strategically-designed, sustainable programs.
PPA´s vision is to create a society were all vulnerable groups have equal access to developmental services.
PPA´s core areas of strength include:
• Community mobilization/sensitization
• Environmental justice interventions
• Using community theatre (dramas and plays) as a veritable tool in engaging youths (in and out of school) on issues of HIV & AIDS, TB and other STIs;
• Adolescent sexual and reproductive health
• Strategic Behavioural Change Communication (SBCC)
• Empowerment programs through trainings and research
Main Activities in the Field of Conflict Transformation
• PPA advocates for environmental justice in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria, responding to lingering environmental degradation associated with oil spills and gas flaring that often causes crises in the community. The organization has built the capacity of young community members in oil producing areas in Akwa Ibom State on how to peacefully engage the oil producing companies on the need for corporate accountability and sustainable oil exploration.
• PPA belongs to a credible network of NGOs called the ´Budget Transparency Accountability Initiative (BTAN)´, whose aim is to track how members spent funds received from International Donors and also engages in all Cross River State/Local Government budget processes.
Umo Isua-Ikoh is the Director of Peace Point Action (PPA).
